The main goal of this division was to sell as many petroleum burning, oil and kerosene, products as they could. This division had no known lantern mfg. facility, so they bought lanterns from other lantern mfg. companys. Lanterns with the name "Rayo," were produced for Standard Oil by the following lantern companys; Defiance Lantern & Stamping, Perkins Marine Lamp Corp., R.E. Dietz Co., Embury MFG. Co., Pritchard-Strong Co.,and many others. This lantern appears to be made by the Embury MFG. Company because of the globe lifting lever design.

Dietz U.S. BRASS Lantern $200.00
Click Here for Product Details! [ CLC1114 ] We believe this nice earlier brass lantern to be a crossover lantern from the United States Tin Tubular lantern (1880-1887) line of Dietz to the U.S. Brass Tubular (1880-1905). Both lantern lines offered the "with or without globe guard" option from 1880 to 1887. This lantern has the same bail holder design and tube seams on the sides as the United States Tin Tubular lantern, where as the seams on the U.S. Brass lanterns are on the front of the tubes. This lantern, in my opinion, would be considered VERY RARE. ( Circa 1880 - 1888 )$9.95 SHIPPING - INCLUDES INSURANCE.

The finish would have been Black. This lantern is considered RARE. ( CIRCA 1898 - 1914 ) $9.95 SHIPPING - INCLUDES INSURANCE.

Click Here for Product Details! [ CLC1121 ] The No.1 and No.2 Blizzard was sold as a reflector lantern. It had a reflector which slid over the tubes, directing the light downward. Very few of these reflectors have survived. The No.1 Blizzard was a poor seller, and after a few years, ordered for the No.1 was filled with the No.2. Both lanterns are considered RARE.

It has the globe guard design, and font, of the Defiance Lantern and Stamping Company, but with the cold blast and tripod globe lifter lever design as the Embury MFG.
